In today’s tough economy, organizations are constantly looking for ways to gain competitive or operational advantage by delivering compelling new services, enhancing the customer or constituent experience, training and retaining good employees, and maximizing overall network performance and efficiency. Though new technologies and applications offer great promise in helping achieve these goals, the significant investment required to keep pace with them in a sustained and cost-effective way presents challenges for any organization, taxing already constrained IT staff and budgets, no matter the size.
Welcome to HughesON Managed Network Services. Building on the Hughes heritage of innovation and leadership in broadband technology and services, HughesON is a comprehensive set of managed network services, ranging from high-capacity access and high-availability solutions, to digital signage and training solutions— optimized for the unique needs of enterprise and government organizations.
HughesON managed network services employ new Hughes technologies that transform “best-efforts” broadband into true enterprise-class WANs. Hughes ActiveQoS™, ActiveBonding™, and ActiveCompression™ (see box) are core ingredients that enable cost-effective data, voice, and video convergence with high application performance. Incorporating sophisticated edge intelligence and backed by enterprise-grade Service Level Agreements (SLAs), HughesON Network Solutions™ deliver MPLS-like performance over broadband VPNs at significant savings. For high-impact messaging, HughesON Digital Media Solutions™ arm organizations to stand out from today’s noise, enabling the most compelling communications with customers, constituents, and employees.
By converging all network elements—transport, devices, and applications as part of a comprehensive service architecture—HughesON solutions deliver better performance, higher reliability, and assured security. Ideal for distributed enterprises, such as retail, restaurant, oil/gas, hospitality and financial services, as well as distributed government agencies, HughesON managed network services power organizations to better serve their customers and constituents, engage their employees, and streamline their operations.
Real-time applications such as VoIP and point-of-sale require priority handling on the network. Hughes Performance Optimization™ employs Hughes ActiveQoS technology to connect all locations with end-to-end application prioritization, guaranteeing that critical apps get through—even in the presence of lower-priority data competing for bandwidth. This method of adding end-to-end QoS (Quality of Service) over affordable broadband networks, such as DSL and cable, is far more economical than an MPLS network with T1 or Ethernet access.
Keeping up with the latest security threats and compliance requirements can be overwhelming and expensive. HughesON Managed Security™ provides best-in-class security for the unique needs of distributed organizations, including next-generation firewall capabilities, such as data leak prevention, vulnerability scanning, and intrusion prevention. The recently introduced Hughes HR4000 Series of Branch Gateways combines industry-leading security capabilities from Fortinet with Performance Optimization technology, designed with the needs of the multi-branch network in mind. With this single, easy-to-deploy, managed platform, Hughes has combined security, routing, and performance optimization—saving enterprises the expense and complexity of deploying individual devices. Now that’s delivering applications smarter.
Neither enterprises nor government agencies can afford network downtime. Hughes offers a cost-effective method of adding a truly diverse, high-speed backup solution using any combination of DSL, 3G/4G wireless, and broadband satellite. Available nationwide, Hughes High-Availability Networking™ employs alternate path links to ensure maximum network resilience, even when disaster strikes. Back-up links can also double as part of a load-balancing configuration in which multiple applications are sent via different links to improve overall performance.
Dynamic, high-impact digital media and video are the most effective means for organizations to easily and creatively stay connected with their customers, constituents, and employees. HughesON MediaSignage™ provides customer- and constituent-facing signage solutions, including interactive touchscreens, which inform, engage, and encourage action. HughesON MediaTraining™ provides rich-media training solutions delivered to employees in break rooms and conference rooms, or on mobile devices such as an iPad, thereby improving workforce know-how, morale, and productivity. And HughesON MediaTV™ offers customer/constituent and employee-facing signage solutions that incorporate live broadcast TV, or infotainment. HughesON Digital Media Solutions offer a complete organization-wide solution to manage, schedule, and deploy digital media, ensuring that organizations get the right message out to the right people at the right time.
HughesON is new, but carries with it the Hughes heritage of over 25 years of experience building and managing large-scale distributed networks for business and government. Plus, an unbeatable combination of talented people, worldwide network operations centers, and broadband technology and business leadership: That’s why the HughesON suite of managed network services is the right choice to power enterprise and government networks to new heights—faster, smarter, more reliably, with greater impact, and cost-effectively.
